Pie Maker (with Rebecca Miller)

I want you to think about the difficult decisions you’ve made in your life. More specifically, I want you to think about the tough conversations you’ve had to have about these decisions. Maybe telling your parents that you’re moving out? Dropping out of school to pursue your dream? How about telling your significant other, “You know that large amount of student debt I accumulated to become a lawyer? Well, I decided I’m going to stop practicing law and start baking pies for a living instead.”...

Yoga Instructor (with Christie Rafanan)

What is yoga? Is the answer a simple one about exercise or is it a complex one about philosophy and awareness? After today’s interview I have a feeling that if you asked 10 different people you may get 10 different answers. Christie Rafanan is an amazing yoga teacher in San Francisco, and a good friend of mine. We’ll dive into that many layered question trying to define yoga and hear about how it transformed Christie’s life.

Recreational Therapist (with Andrew Hermansen)

What do you think of when you think of the word therapy? Therapist? Most of us think of traditional psychotherapy, talking through your life and problems with someone. Using your head to fix your head. However, many people and cultures throughout history have placed an equal, if not greater, focus on the body as a means to mental health. Surrounding yourself with nature, exercising, playing, these are all things that can have a massive impact on your mental state. In fact, it’s so...

Haunted Hotel Photographer (with Craig Owens)

Do you believe in ghosts? Like religion, your belief in the paranormal can really be swayed by the culture you belong to. For some reason in America we don’t really embrace the idea of ghosts, and yet over 80 percent of our population believes in the afterlife. Today’s guest, Craig Owens, is a talented photographer and, like many people, used to be ghost-agnositc. Then, one day Craig was doing a vintage photo shoot at a supposedly haunted hotel, and he experienced paranormal phenomena...

Interior Designer (with Mackenzie Collier)

How we feel as we enter a space is a pretty complex thing. Smells, sounds, spacing, art, furniture, plants, lighting - it all melds together in our minds to make us feel a certain way. Do we feel relaxed, energized, uneasy? The interesting thing is, most of us won’t even know why we feel a certain way in a home or building, we’ll just feel that way. Today’s guest is a trained interior designer, which means that it’s her job to create a space that not only looks appealing, but one that...

A Razor A Shiny Knife (with Michael Cirino)

Growing up and making your way in the world can be hard. That’s kind of what this show is about, see what people choose to do as they forge their path in this world. Most of us, and nearly every person I’ve had on this show, choose a path that has been walked by someone before us. That doesn’t change the fact that we need to be brave to do it, might have to leave something behind to pursue it, and need to give a lot of ourselves to succeed. It just means that we got the idea to walk down...

IT Auditor (with Tim Dubois)

When most of us think of getting audited we think of the IRS and our taxes, and a big not fun process. When most of us think of accounting we simply thinking of numbers, boring repetitive numbers. Today we will hear from an auditor that works for a major accounting firm, and his job has nothing to do with taxes, or numbers for that matter. Tim is an IT auditor, which means that when it comes down to it, he’s using his accounting degree to work in the tech world. He’ll explain IT auditing...

Marijuana Grow Manager (with Alex) Part 2

The landscape of marijuana in the United States (and many other areas of the world) is changing. Thanks to that changing landscape it is not only not as taboo as it used to be, it’s also a possibly serious, legal business venture to get started with. Despite the shift it’s still a great place to make a lot of money depending on where you live. Today’s guest, Alex, manages a full scale weed growing operation in Los Angeles. He’ll tell us all about the legal ways to make money working with...

Microbrewery Owner (with Drew Pool)

Ahhhh beer, how I love thee. Is there anything more refreshing than a Mexican beer with a lime on a hot day? Is there anything more satisfying than a dunkelweizen in the fall? Anything more perfect than a complex IPA or red ale? The answer to all of these questions is of course, no. If only we could be surrounded by beer all the time. Most beer aficionados have considered how amazing it would be to open up a brewery and make beer for a living. Few people have actually done it. Today’s...

Life, more specifically modern life in the modern world, puts a lot of stress on our minds and bodies. For 99% of human existence on this planet people did and didn’t do things quite differently from how they do or don’t do them now. They did have long portions of every day where they got to be quiet, and just listen to nature. They did follow the natural cycles of the sun and the moon. They did not eat processed or made in a lab food. They did not sit at a desk using their brains at max...

The younger generations of today are unfairly saddled with a myriad of judgements and prejudices. They’re obsessed with technology. And yet they're the ones who brought back vinyl, film, and are still interested in print. They’re self absorbed. And yet they’re the ones who above all else just want to have a job with a purpose that helps the world. They’re too busy with their technology to pay attention to what’s around them. And yet they’re the ones that look at life through an artistic...

There are a lot of things in this world that I don’t understand. I guess that’s why I started this podcast. You'd think that I would usually be awed and baffled by new technology, but it’s typically stuff that wasn’t made in this millennia that has me looking like that super cute thinking emoji. Fax machines? Get outta here. Radio broadcasting? Basically witchcraft. Commercial flight? You can talk about drag and lift until you’re blue in the face, but I still can’t wrap my head around a...

Starting your own business can be quite the undertaking. You have to learn about SO much in order to get your business off the ground. One of those things that is increasingly taking up entrepreneurs’ time is simply trying to look good. Nice design, tight branding…things that give the appearance that you actually know what you’re doing. Things that show the world that you belong here. The problem is that most entrepreneurs have no idea how to make great design or great branding, so they...

Let’s play a game. I want you to imagine that you are confronted by a nefarious magical being and said NMB says to you, “I am going to take one of your five major senses, but you may keep the other four”. So first you try to remember what your five senses are, and you remember that you have sight, hearing, taste, touch, and smell. Next you go down the line and think of how each one has been a part of your life in recent and distant memory, trying to asses which would be the most...

‘A penny for your thoughts?’ An interesting question, isn’t it? It sure doesn't place a whole lot of value on your thoughts. Our thoughts, feelings, experiences, people just don’t care that much about them. Everyone’s got their own problems and they definitely don't want to hear mine. Yet somehow, some people are paid for their thoughts, more than a penny in fact, and it’s not just famous people. Thanks to the internet regular people just like you and me are sharing their lives and finding...
